Bromsgrove Wills 1750 - 1799
Until 1858, English wills were proved in the church courts. The fees paid by the executors provided a valuable source of income to the bishop of each diocese. The wills of most of Bromsgrove’s testators were therefore proved at Worcester and are now preserved in the Worcestershire Record Office. The Record Office has microfilms of all these wills from which copies can be made. The list given below was compiled by Jenny Townsend of the Bromsgrove Society from the typed indexes available in the Record Office search room.
